What is an interest only mortgage?
With an interest only mortgage, your monthly mortgage payments only cover the interest you owe. This means, over time, the amount borrowed (the capital) does not reduce and will need to be repaid in full at the end of the mortgage term.
For example: If you have an interest only mortgage of £100,000 for 25 years, you will pay the interest on the loan each month. But at the end of the 25 years, you will still owe the full £100,000.
If you have an interest only mortgage or a mortgage that includes an amount borrowed on interest only terms, it’s important to check regularly that your repayment plan is on track to repay the mortgage at the end of the term.
